Abstract
Using infrared double-resonance spectroscopy on the time-scale of picosecon$Is the ultrafast dynamics of hydrogen bonds In condensed matter is directly investigated for the first time. We have developed a two-colour pump-probe technique with independently tunable Intense pump ( iO W/cm2) and weak probing pulses /1/. Within the tuning range of 1.4 - 4 jim novel spectroscopic information Is obtained by the help of temporal (' 3 ps), spectral ( 5 cm1 ) and polarization resolution. New spectral features not accessible for conventional IR spectroscopy are observed, e.g. excited state absorption, induced hot bands and, most important, spectral holes. In this way photophysical (vibrational energy transfer) and IR-photochemical processes are Investigated. Structural information is derived from the separation of inhomogeneous and homogeneous broadening effects of the Infrared bands.
